Here is a breathtaking and rare large size antique Victorian sterling silver heart-shaped vinaigrette locket. I believe it was made in the US, and it has a patent year of 1889. It has a delicate and ornate open work floral pattern cover on top and is clean on the back. Opened from the two side bullets, the case reveals a deep compartment with its original vinaigrette filter inside. It also still retains its original bale at the top which allows it to be worn as a pendant. Gold wash surface inside. The whole piece is in a pristine condition with all components intact.

This vinaigrette pendant is such a sentimental and romantic piece! Its ornate design and practical functionality can be easily re-imagined into a keepsake/locket to store a love note (say, "I love you" or "will you marry me?"), photos, a lock of hair, small jewelry, or even a pill box, the list goes on and on...

Measurement : approx. 1.75" by 1.5" (just the heart shape, excluding the bale).

Metal and Hallmark: It is fully hallmarked as sterling silver, maker's mark and patent year of 1889.

Weight: approx. 26 grams.

Condition: very fine antique condition with minor fine scratches and wear. It opens well and closes securely with a click. Please look through all the listing pictures for the general condition.
